Defense & National Security

The Obama-Soros Connection

This is the third installment of a five-part series on how Barack Obama is America’s number one threat to national security.

The first shots in the Obama Revolution, the highly unlikely campaign that elevated an inexperienced former Chicago community organizer born in Hawaii and raised in Indonesia into the Oval Office, were fired at the Long Island Southampton beach house of billionaire hedge fund manager George Soros.

Soros is one of the wealthiest men on the planet, with a personal fortune of at least $7 billion and additional investments of another $11 billion or so. His collaborative group of pro-Left foundations distributes more than $400 million a year to causes ranging from underwriting left-leaning Democrat Party candidates to legalizing marijuana to advocating for euthanasia. 

It was at a highly secretive meeting in the summer of 2002 that Soros, Morton Halperin, (the director of Soros’ Open Society Institute), John Podesta (the former Clinton White House chief of staff), Jeremy Rosner (a former speech writer for Bill Clinton), Robert Boorstin (a Democrat strategist and also a former speech writer for Clinton) and Carl Pope (a Democrat strategist and environmentalist) met to draft a plan to defeat President George W. Bush in the presidential election of 2004.

Ultimately, Soros would spend approximately $26 million of his own money in a failed mission to rid America of President Bush. It was through this effort, however, that Soros gave birth to a much more ominous cause, the “Shadow Party.” And the Shadow Party would eventually become the Obama Administration. And George Soros would become the master puppeteer for the President of the United States and the leader of the free world.

Without Soros and the Shadow Party, Barack Obama would be, at best, a senator from Illinois attending social gatherings with domestic terrorists Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn and sitting in the pews of black liberation theologist Reverend Jeremiah Wright. At worse, he’d be an unremarkable and unheard of state senator. Instead, Barack Obama is the President of the United States.

Only July 7, 2003, Soros, Halperin, Podesta and Harold Ickes, (deputy chief of staff for the Clinton White House, money man, and dirty trickster) founded the American Majority Institute just three blocks from the White House to be the cornerstone organization of the Shadow Party. A few months later, they changed the name to the Center for American Progress under which it is known today. The organization describes itself as “a nonpartisan research and educational institute” aimed at “developing a long-term vision of a progressive America” and “providing a forum to generate new progressive ideas and policy proposals.”

In reality, the CAP is a leftist “think tank/action tank,” the nerve center of the Left’s attack on American values and conservatives, and the primary source of Barack Obama’s positions. Not coincidentally, one of the attendees at the select meeting in 2002 is now the CAP’s president, John Podesta, the former White House chief of staff to Bill Clinton and one of the three principal architects of the Obama transition team.

During the Clinton Administration’s first term in office, John Podesta held positions as White House staff secretary and as an assistant to President Clinton. I first met Podesta when he returned to work for Bill Clinton in 1997 after a two-year leave of absence, first as assistant to the President Chief of Staff for Erskine Bowles and then as chief of staff replacing Bowles.
Clinton brought Podesta back into the stead when the “bimbo eruptions” of Paula Jones and Monica Lewinsky, and impending impeachment, threatened his presidency and Podesta was adept at handling crises of this sort.

From 2003 to 2007, CAP would receive over $15 million from grants from more than 60 foundations, with the biggest contributor being George Soros, who ponied up the first $3 million. Today, they have over 180 staff members and an annual budget of $27 million.

The personal relationship between Soros and Obama goes back at least as far as June, 2004, when the billionaire Soros hosted a fundraiser for Obama’s U.S. Senate campaign at his New York home. Soros’ and the Lefts’ “Chosen One,” Obama, was successfully elected to the U.S Senate. And, after the failure of their efforts to oust George Bush in 2004, Soros convened another secretive meeting of 70 like-minded and wealthy donors in Scottsdale, Ariz., to take a look at what had gone wrong and to develop a plan for the future. This meeting would eventually be called the “Phoenix Group” and, in the end, Barack Obama would be the benefactor of the efforts that would emerge from this confab.

In December 2006, as Obama was contemplating a run for the White House, George Soros and Barack Obama met to discuss the young senator’s political ambitions. In a matter of a few weeks, on January 16, 2007, Obama announced he was establishing a presidential exploratory committee although, at that point, he’d logged a total of only 143 days in service as a U.S. senator. “I recognize that there is a certain presumptuousness in this, a certain audacity to this announcement,” Obama would concede.

Literally hours after the announcement, Soros sent Obama the maximum individual contribution allowed by campaign finance law. Later that week, Soros announced that he would be supporting the candidacy of Barack Obama instead of Hillary Clinton, the candidate he’d previously supported. In an interview he conducted with Judy Woodruff in May, 2008, Soros was prophetic, gushing “Obama has the charisma and the vision to radically reorient America in the world,” and added “this emphasis on experience is way overdone.”

    It takes the “inexperienced former Chicago community organizer” 10 years to produce a faked birth certificate…so no prizes for knowing He was not born in Hawaii.

    Thanks again for unselfish service to this country and all your hard work and
    un-wavering fortitude to continue serving our country by sharing this and other
    revealing information regarding President Obama’s background that we won’t find
    in the MSM.

    Was there a conspiracy to put Obama in the White House?-Posted on The Post & EMail-By Sharon Rondeau-On March 2, 2010:

    These are pertinent excerpts from this article and/or blog post:

    “(Mar. 2, 2010) — It is no wonder that Sarah P. Herlihy is an associate attorney specializing in litigation at the Chicago law firm Kirkland & Ellis LLP.  On its website, the firm displays that it was “named to the ‘Global Elite.’”

    Herlihy graduated from the prestigious Chicago-Kent College of Law in 2005 and is the author of an essaypublished in the Chicago-Kent Law Review on Feb. 22, 2006 entitled “Amending the Natural Born Citizen Requirement:  Globalization as the Impetus and the Obstacle.”

    Kirkland law partner Bruce I. Ettelson lists to his credit having been a “Former Member of finance
    committees of U.S. Senators Barack Obama and Richard Durbin.” The law firm employs literally
    hundreds of attorneys who specialize in the areas of intellectual property, anti-trust and competition, corporate and tax, and “community service.”

    Herlihy’s essay was widely disseminated on the internet during the 2008 presidential campaign as rumors surfaced that Obama and possibly McCain did not meet the “natural born Citizen” requirement laid out in Article II, Section 1, paragraph 5 of the U.S. Constitution.  Various bloggers noted that the author of the piece was employed at a law firm which had forged connections with Barack Obama, then-senator from Illinois.  The original document can be found on Bing and Ixquick search engines, but not on Google.”

    We knew that B.O. was somebody’s puppet, now we know who the puppet master is.

  • dlschoen

    FYI –
    One must be 12% of a certain race to call yourself that race.  Obama’s (or whatever his real name is) percentages are -
    8/16ths White, 7/16ths Arab, 1/16 Black

    If you’re just now figuring out that Soros has been behind obaMAO all along then I must say you’re a bit slow on the uptake. I don’t want to offend you but most of the rest of America figured that out sometime back in 2008-09. Glad you could join us though, welcome aboard!

  • derekcrane

    So, are you denying that Soros has not given substantial support to Obama?

  • kelstephe

    You would see that. You are so blinded by all the handouts and free stuff your great fake leader and king is giving you. Where oh where is the racism in any of these posts!!!!!!!

  • Patito33

    This man is out to destroy America! He is a crimminal, so thx to the pos media we have Obama as president!. The second term thx to the fix in Ohio! These people are pure evil!. Yes Obama was born in Kenya. When you have enough power and money behind you anything can be done, like a fake birth certificate!

  • Ron Wieder

    Obama has repeatedly proven his lack of knowledge and administrative ability throughout his political career and as president he is nothing more than a JOKE !

  • Kelly England O’Hara

    Always follow the money, to find out whose in charge….especially in politics.

  • Kelly England O’Hara

    What’s “sad… so sad…” is that you liberals reduce everything to race because having NO principles yourselves, can not fathom that people would be against obama because he represents EVERYTHING that we believe to be destructive to this country and opposes EVERYTHING we hold dear. I would detest him if we were as “white” as snow. And how do you explain the opposition of his presidency by “black” people?!?! You liberals need to find a new song because this one is over played and way off key.

    when the dust settles down we’ll probably find that he was born in Hawaii after all. This smokescreen of a false certificate is deliberately created by his benefactors and left in place to distract from the more serious fact that he was and is officially an Indonesion citizen and moslem; also from who his real father might in fact be. He revoked whatever US status he had and never regained it properly. Now he officially doens’t have to lie about his birthplace. These layered lies are deliberately left in place around someone in order to be able to control him in the end by his benefactors. He now has passed the point of no return and is utterly compromised; He’ll do anything the tell him.

    One thing Brzezinski would have drummed into Barry was to be ready to grab the gun in his back. After all it was Zbigniew who taught young Bozo his stand-up comedy, including the back-up line

    “Is that a gun in your pocket, Zbig, or are you just being friendly again?”
